Garden County Elementary hosted Creek Valley and South Platte Elementary students for a Hampstead Stage Company (HSC) performance of “The Wizard of Oz” on April 15, 2019. 260+ students and 26 adults enjoyed the performance, followed by a shared lunch and recess. This annual event has been a longstanding tradition enjoyed by the students to increase their cultural awareness and promote county relationships.


HSC is a nonprofit national educational touring theatre that performs one-hour original adaptations of literary classics to focus on strengthening 21st-century content and skills including empathy, creativity, innovation, critical thinking, leadership, and responsibility.



This week the Garden County 9th grade got the opportunity to participate in their fourth and final Off the Page lesson. In keeping with the "frontier" concept of their OTP unit, the students got the chance to work with Mr. Hyatt and learn about the final frontier; space. During this lesson students built model rockets and launched them on the football field. This engaging activity taught the students about physics, engineering, and space flight, while it reviewed some basic math principles as well. All in all, this lesson was a great capstone on a year of learning about frontiers and where the world may be headed. 






Please note that this is now a live calendar and things will be added and edited periodically so please check back often. If you are a google calendar user you can add these events to your calendar.
On Friday, September 14th, all 8th graders were trained in Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR). According to the American Heart Association, "CPR, if administered immediately after cardiac arrest can double or triple a person's chance of survival. About 90 percent of people who experience an out-of-hospital cardiac arrest die." 8th Civics students are participating in activities throughout the year that encourages engagement with the community and to become more involved citizens.
